Ilario, Charlie and Katie started their journey 2 years ago with a well received debut at the Lauderdale house in London. The concert was live streamed in Europe and the synergy between them and their capacity to bring the audience in a beautiful emotional Journey has been very clear since then. As Chris Newstead director of Watford Jazz Junction said “..Bringing an unmistakable mediterranean feel into contemporary jazz, the trio feed off each other effortlessly grabbing cues and developments for great improvisation and undoubtable musicianship.”
